Reality Tea

RHONY-Bethenny-Frankel-Dorinda-Medley

Last season on Real Housewives of New York, viewers saw the break up of the friendship of Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill. The heartache continued for Bethenny offscreen with the death of her on-again-off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields from a suspected drug overdose.

Bethenny had been super private about their relationship. It meant Dennis rarely appeared on RHONY even though the pair began dating in 2016.  So it’s been surprising to hear moree about their relationship since his death. Bethenny revealed in the premiere for season 11 that she’s been texting Dennis since he died. She also admitted that her daughter Bryn Hoppy texted him as well even though she doesn’t seem to understand the finality of Dennis’ death.

Tinsley Mortimer Says Barbara Kavovit Is Doing Luann De Lesseps’ “Dirty Work;” Dorinda Should Be Upset About Clambake

Real Housewives of New York is back for Season 11, and I am here for the drama! The ladies kicked off the season in the Hamptons, where we learned that the Housewives are divided into two teams: the blondes (led by Ramona Singer) and the brunettes (helmed by Luann De Lesseps). The exception is Sonja Morgan, who floats between the two camps.

Tinsley Mortimer, of course, is still looking for love. She split from on-and-off boyfriend Scott Kluth. Again. During Season 9 of RHONY, Tinsley was introduced to the Chicago businessman by Housewives alum  Carole Radziwell. This socialite is on a mission to obtain an engagement ring. Tinsley is not stopping until she gets one. Hopefully, she can avoid the temptation of trying on wedding dresses again before she has a commitment. That was just awkward.

Last night on Married to Medicine LA, Dr. Britten Cole faced the reality of the summer ending. She needs to figure out if her family will move to LA with her. The only person she must convince now is her husband, Mack Major. Currently in Florida, they live in a beautiful home and Mack is unwilling to settle for a “shack” in the city of LA. He is willing to continue to look for the perfect home for his family to be in one place. Let’s hope they can get it together. Her husband is very handsome (stay close Britten)!

Asha Kamali-Blankinship reveals to her husband, Larry Blankenship, that she is still emotional about meeting his ex at Shanique Drummond’s husband’s birthday party. She is better than me because I wouldn’t have admitted to the ladies or anyone that it bothered me that much. In an act of desperation, Asha and her husband go to the fertility specialist. Maybe she will feel more secure with the ring and a baby. The doctor’s advice is basically for them to have sex every day. I hope they didn’t pay too much for that consultation. That is common sense.

Below Deck Jet Ski Accident

Ahoy, readers!  I must announce all of my nautical dreams and wishes have come true in the form of another series from the very popular Below Deck franchise!  Always a fan of watching any and all antics on the high seas, another form of this show brings me so much joy and makes me downright giddy with excitement.  This time the action on the high seas will happen aboard a luxury sailing charter rather than the charter yachts we have become accustomed to.

We are coming off the most recent season of Below Deck where we witnessed wild (“I’m a boat captain too you know!”) Rhylee Gerber yelling “Got it!” to long-suffering Bosun Ross Inia a minimum of 15 times per episode. And, of course, the amazing working relationship between Queen of the High Seas of Chief Stew-dom Kate Chastain and Josiah Carter.  #bestseasonever

Eva Marcille Wedding - Real Housewives Of Atlanta

It was a wedding and practically a funeral on last night’s Real Housewives Of AtlantaEva Marcille said “I Do” to Michael Sterling in a super lavish ceremony and reception that was completely upstaged by NeNe Leakes‘ drama with everyone.

Eva’s wedding gown consisted of a 400 foot train (length and width) with these weird insect leg things that propelled out from her bust like rings of Saturn. Essentially the bottom part was Princess Diana. Meanwhile, the top was Alien Queen. I really didn’t get the effect.

Especially when coupled with Eva’s hair, which featured an ENORMOUS crown thingy that looked like it belonged with a Frozen costume and frizzy hair underneath her veil. Also, super long pointy matte white nails like she painted them with White-Out. You know you did that in middle school too! Anyway, I felt like the whole look was stiff, overdone, and not particularly flattering. Very costume-like. Just me? 

Southern Charm’s Thomas Ravenel Subpoenas Patricia Altschul To Court

Thomas Ravenel must like the inside of a courtroom. The former Southern Charm star currently has a variety of cases in the South Carolina legal system. One of them is (say it with me now) an alleged sexual assault case. Another one is a long term custody war with ex-girlfriend, Kathryn Dennis.

Thomas and Kathryn are parents to daughter Kensington, and her little brother, Saint Julien. T-Rav employs a new strategy in his case against Kathryn, but is he trying to play a chess game with checkers moves? The back and forth is ongoing and only the children have remained consistent. Kensie and Saint seem like pawns in this brutal family battle that refuses to end.

Dorinda Medley - Real Housewives Of New York RHONY

The new season of Real Housewives Of New York is rife with unresolved drama from the last finale.  We are only two episodes in, but the battle lines have been drawn.  And we’re back to blondes versus brunettes.  Surely it’s only practical that the ladies at the center of current feud are holding court in two different houses.  Bethenny Frankel and newbie Barbara Kavovit are sheltering Luann De Lesseps, while Ramona Singer hosts Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer.

As of what fans just saw, there is no reconciliation on the horizon for Luann and Dorinda.  But Dorinda, joined by Ramona, interviewed with PEOPLE Now last week and revealed that their relationship has done a 180 since filming the start of the season.

Caroline Bedol

Caroline Bedol’s brief tenure on Below Deck was fraught with histrionics and paranoia.  Third Stews don’t have longevity on this show, but Caroline didn’t even get a full’s day work in.  She was consistently unwell.  A swollen foot was the only visible and concrete ailment.

Perhaps Caroline was truly a victim of a toxic atmosphere as she claimed.  If so, she certainly would be faring better on land, right?  You decide.  There was a cringe-worthy call into Watch What Happens Live, and a welfare check to her home in December.
